Is there a free program to clean up my computer?

"There are a lot of unknown files piled up on my hard drive. I used to do disk clean up to remove them, but I feel tired to clean them by myself. I'm wondering whether there is a free program or automatic PC cleaner to clean up my computer automatically. Thanks in advance."

It's common to find your computer is full of all kinds of useless files and folders, which is certainly slowing down your PC performance. When you encounter such an issue, your first thought might be asking help for Windows built-in programs like disk cleanup.

It's no doubt that performing disk cleanup can help a lot. However, a number of users have reported that the useless files can't be removed completely, the free space released from it is not enough, and most importantly, manual operations are required with disk cleanup. That's why they long for an automatic cleaner for PC to clear out the junk files from their computers.

How to free up space with automatic PC cleaner?

Fortunately, Windows system includes a feature called Storage Sense that can be seen as a free automatic PC cleaner. It provides you with an automatic way to clean your disks regularly. With it, you don't have to struggle to manually erase temporary files or unknown folders to keep your hard drive clean. Now the steps below will show you how to turn on Storage Sense and how to configure it to clean up disk automatically:
